720 CCG Improves Filling Line Operation and Reduced Product Loss

Intro

Case study – Chesterton ILMRO products – Industrial Lubricants

Chesterton - Global Solutions, Local Service

 

 

A food manufacturer was dealing with corrosion on a filling line transmission chain. The lubricant they were using was easily washing off with water and acidic food residue. The lack of lubrication resulted in erratic operation of the conveyor, which caused product spillage. The drive chains were cleaned with Chesterton® 723 FG Sprasolvo™ Oil and then sprayed with Chesterton® 720 CCG.

Products featured in the case study:

720 Chain Cable Gear Lubricant.

723 FG Sprasolvo Oil.

Challenge

A food manufacturer was dealing with corrosion on a filling line transmission chain. The lubricant they were using was easily washing off with water and acidic food residue. It was not protecting the chain from water and corrosion. The daily sanitation cleaning of the filling line completely removed lubricant. The customer had to lubricate the chain every day.

The lack of lubrication resulted in erratic operation of the conveyor, which caused product spillage.

A filling line conveyor chain exposed to water and food residue was corroding due to poor quality lubrication.

Solution

The Chesterton representative recommended Chesterton® 720 CCG Chain, Cable, and Gear Lubricant 720 CCG is a semifluid polymer modified synthetic chain oil with excellent water and corrosion resistant capabilities.

The drive chains were cleaned with Chesterton® 723 FG Sprasolvo™ Oil to remove old residual oil. 720 CCG (diluted version) was then applies using a trigger sprayer.

720 Chain Cable Gear Lubricant was sprayed in diluted form with a trigger sprayer.

Results

Initially the customer applied 720 CCG every day as usual, but after a week, the customer realised that the product remained on the chain even after cleaning the filling line with detergents, so they moved to a bi-weekly application.

With the use of 720 CCG, the corrosion spots on the chain were significantly reduced. The erratic chain operation caused by corrosion was eliminated, and product spillage was reduced significantly.

A smooth, corrosion and trouble-free operation.
